Mrs Justice Lang will give her judgement on the decision to frack in Ryedale, North Yorkshire this morning and she is set to rule that fracking may go-ahead.
Claimant in the case, Reverend Jackie Cray, said:
“I’m obviously disappointed in the verdict but it doesn’t end here. There is no support in North Yorkshire for this risky industry. We will continue to campaign on behalf of local communities for the sake of our children and their children’s health and well-being, and the long term prosperity of our area. We are not prepared for Ryedale to become a sacrifice zone for the sake of industry greed.”
The high court has ruled that fracking can go ahead in beautiful Yorkshire, and we must rise to this latest challenge
Donna Hume, Friends of the Earth campaigner, said:
“The high court has ruled that fracking can go ahead in beautiful Yorkshire, and we must rise to this latest challenge.
“The judge found that North Yorkshire Councillors had assessed the impacts of climate change. But we know that climate change was barely mentioned at that crucial council meeting where the decision to allow fracking was taken, and more damningly, that councillors didn’t have the information about the total carbon emissions produced from the fracking project.
“Residents have said they will continue to do everything they can to peacefully prevent Barclays’ owned Third Energy from fracking, and we will be standing with them.”
